Alcazar in Cordoba - Cordoba is a World Heritage city Spain.

Today a moderately sized modern city, the old town contains many impressive architectural reminders of when Cordoba was the thriving capital of the Caliphate of Cordoba that governed almost all of the Iberian peninsula. It has been estimated that Cordoba, with up to 500,000 inhabitants in the tenth century, was the second largest city in the world after Constantinople.

Cordoba is famous for its floral patio arrangements. Residents, in some quarters, take great pride in their patios and compete amongst themselves for the most beautiful display. The city's old quarter is also famous for its distinctive white buildings and balconies decorated with flowers. The pavements of the town are also populated with orange trees.

The Andalusian tradition of Flamenco dancing is still trying to maintain a strong presence in Cordoba today; with a rich history of famous Flamenco figures and several competitions and shows. The Concurso National de Arte Flamenco in Cordoba, first established in 1956, is held every three years in April to May.

The tourism is very important for the future of the city, and so great care is taken in maintaining both monuments and Andlusian traditions to ensure it.

The former mosque with a Christian cathedral built in its middle is considered a "site of world heritage". Inside it is still decorated with a large number of arches (856) and columns, while its exterior was built like a fortress is well worth a visit see hotels near Mezquita de Cordoba
